The prison term of Aziz Orujov, head of “Kanal 13” Internet TV, has been extended for another month – until March 27. On February 21, the Sabail District Court made a decision on this.

The defense intends to file an appeal against the court’s decision.

Aziz Orujov, head of “Kanal 13” Internet Television, was detained on November 27 last year. The Sabail District Court of Baku City chose a 3-month preventive measure against him.
